    Hey,

    I'm 24, graduated last year with a 2:1 from the University of Lincoln in Biomedical Science; I had a job in January to April working for Sodexo/GSK as a lab technician, but lost my job in a budget change between the two companies.

    Since April I've just had this hole developing on my CV and I'm completely lost. I don't really want to work in science R&D, working at GSK showed me that the jobs are very competitive and people are constantly made redundant and seconded. I have no idea what I want to do.

    As an individual I do enjoy keeping up with science updates, but research science isn't at all interesting to me. I enjoy reading fantasy, and gaming. I'm highly reluctant to do a masters due to increasing the 50k+ debt I already have with SF, but at the same time I just don't know what to do, I'd love a well paying job but the business and banking sectors would never appeal to me.

    If anyone can recommend anything, it would be greatly appreciated.
